- Julia Barretto has featured her father, Dennis Padilla, on her latest YouTube vlog
- In the said vlog, Julia asked the comedian some questions she had never asked him before
- Among the questions she asked was about Dennis’ greatest lesson from their past misunderstandings
- This led Dennis to talk about Julia’s petition to change her family name in 2014
Julia Barretto recently had a heart-to-heart conversation with her father, Dennis Padilla.
In her latest vlog titled ‘QUESTIONS I'VE NEVER ASKED MY DAD’, the actress asked the comedian, “What was your greatest lesson from our past misunderstandings?”
“Number one, I should have listened first, I should not have given my opinion first. Kung baga, parang 'Dennis, wag ka munang makialam. Alamin mo muna 'yung puno't dulo. Bakit hindi mo muna tanungin si Julia?'”
“Kaya lang ang frustration ko kasi dati, gusto ko naman ganoon ang mangyari kaya lang hindi ako makapag-communicate sa inyo kasi everytime na magte-text ako, wala akong nakukuhang feedback.”
This led Dennis to talk about Julia’s 2014 petition to change her surname from Baldivia (Dennis’ real surname) to Barretto.
“Remember that issue na diba tinatanggal niyo 'yung family name ko? Diba you went to court that you want to take off my family name? That was a dagger. Hindi dahil lang sa pangalan 'yun ah. It's not the pangalan itself. That's my blood, kaya masakit 'yun.
Saka hindi ko maintindihan anong dahilan bakit kailangang ipatanggal e Baldivia ka naman dahil ako tatay mo... Makakabawas ba ito sa pagkatao mo? No. Makakabawas ba ito sa popularity mo? No.”
To this Julia replied, “But then again, Pa, just to repeat myself, when you signed those papers to make your marriage with mom null and void, ultimately, that made us your illegitimate children so we were trying to correct your mistake. But I think one of your frustrations is you think you didn't get the communication that you wanted.”
The actress went on to praise his father for becoming a better person now.
“You're so much a better person now and I can see it and I'm happy that you reach this point, honestly,” Julia told Dennis.
